WKU Athletic Director Todd Stewart announced Wednesday that the school has officially agreed to a contract extension with football Head Coach Jeff Brohm.
Brohm’s new contract is a four-year extension featuring a raise in his base salary from $600,000 to $800,000. The raise is supported by private funds.
The raise makes Brohm one of the highest-paid coaches in Conference USA and the second highest-paid coach in WKU history behind former football coach Bobby Petrino.
The new contract also terminates Brohm’s pervious non-compete clause that prohibited him from accepting a position at another school in Kentucky.
In 2015, Coach Brohm led the WKU football team to a 12-2 record, a C-USA championship and the program’s second consecutive bowl win in the Miami Beach Bowl.
